"Must sign replacement player before selling" - Potential Bug

Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

I think I've experienced a bug in FM21, however this may be design - if it is a bug I should be able to provide a save game.


  • I am playing as Charlton, the game is at the start of the 2021/22 season.
  • I accepted a bid from Wycombe for Ben Purrington, however I negotiated a condition that I'd sign a replacement D (L) (Bens only natural position) before selling.
  • Throughout the course of two weeks I negotiated and accepted a deal for Cameron John from Doncaster, who is natural at both Central and Left defence, D (LC)
  • The game doesn't recognise that he's a direct replacement for Ben, and thus his transfer to Wycombe cannot be completed. And I'm now left with two players!

Let me know if you need any further information

Hi @Huntyhuntt

Thanks for the feedback. This doesn't sound like it's working as intended. 

If you have a save game from either before the bid for Purrington or before you made an offer for John could you please upload the save game to our cloud service. Details on how to upload can be found below.
